In the home stretch


Quilting is finished, 19 hours of quilting that is!
I have straight lines in the white sashing, creating squares at the junctions.
Then each square I stitched in the ditched to make them puffy.
Usually I FMQ but I didn't want to quilt on the blocks, so this seemed the best option.
The back looks good too.
There are no puckers, no horrendous unmatching lines and no unpicking, this quilt loves me :)
So I have four days of TV recorded and today I will sit, bind and get square eyes.
